The Nameless Citizen is the recording project for Peter Boros. Boros took ten years time off of music. Apparently a chance encounter with an L.A. producer was the impetus that started his four song EP entitled Out Of The Mold.
The songs on Out Of The Mold felt like straight forward alternative songs with different flavors to me with the exception of one song. They were well delivered and fun but I can’t say there were any surprises along the way. On that note the four songs did have a good amount to offer. The production and recording quality is rock solid.
The EP opens with “New Solution (Find My Way)” which is a energy filled atmospheric rock song. Light pads glide against guitar while a tight drum performance propels the song. The song had a single worthy radio friendly quality to it. I thought the lyrics were original enough and vocal performance was solid. The lead guitar work was actually the main attraction for me.
“Insistent Echo” brings down the energy with a song that’s a little more subdued and romantic sounding. The song blends guitars and vocals harmonies while being effectively dynamic. “Wounded But Alive” was a fun song. I just really enjoyed the upbeat energy on this song. The lead guitar was again the winning factor but have to say the drum work is also exceptional here.
“A Little Affirmation” didn’t feel all that connected to the previous songs and veers away from the alternative rock angle. In fact there is a Brazilian aesthetic to this song. The guitar is great and thought it was the most inspired vocal performance.
Boros displays some diversity and talent with these four songs. I’d be interested in hearing some more of his work and maybe a full length will present itself in the future.
